The pandemic has brought the rise of micro-weddings. Couples get married in intimate civil or church ceremonies to follow COVID-19 protocols. As a result, brides opt for a pared-back style on their wedding day. Celebs like Angel Locsin, Alex Gonzaga, and Sarah Lahbati chose to wear low-key outfits. However, it's cool to note that some pre-pandemic brides like Kitchie Nadal and Megan Young wore affordable dresses, and Sarah Geronimo got married in a t-shirt!
If you're a low-bride yourself, get some inspo from these celebrity brides who chose to keep it simple on their wedding day.
Celebrity Brides Who Chose Casual Wedding Dresses, Outfits On Their Big Day
1. Angel Locsin
When Angel married Neil Arce, she opted to wear a white blazer, basic top, black pants, and white sneakers! Their guests were in casual outfits, too!
2. Sarah Geronimo
We were pleasantly surprised when Matteo Guidicelli announced that he and Sarah have tied the knot! Sarah was a super low-key bride: She wore a ponytail, a neutral makeup look, and a beige shirt!
3. Ava Daza
Ava Daza got married to Luch Zanirato in a long-sleeve dress with a ruffled hem. A simple yet sophisticated choice!
4. Rich Asuncion
We couldn't believe Rich's dress was only P5,000! She bought it from an Australian clothing boutique, Sheike. She married Benjamin Mudie in a civil ceremony in Hong Kong.
5. Kitchie Nadal
6. Dionne Monsanto
When Dionne and Ryan Stalder tied the knot in Switzerland, the bride was both practical and sentimental. She wrote in her Instagram post: "I spent 300 pesos on my wedding dress! The bottom part of my dress is my Something Old. It was a thoughtful gift from my sister @travelfoodfinds a year ago. The corset top is something I bought from an online shop in the Philippines for less than Php 300."
7. Megan Young
Another bride who chose not to spend so much on her dress: Megan Young. She wore a P3,590 dress when she got married to Mikael Daez in an intimate church ceremony.
8. Yam Concepcion
Yam and Miguel Cuunjieng tied the knot aboard a boat in New York City. Yam opted to wear the cutest white puff-sleeve dress plus a pretty straw hat!

It seems puff sleeve dresses are celebrity brides' favorite! Here, Alex is in a Rajo Laurel creation and satin ballet flats!

KZ totally skipped the lavish wedding gown when she wed TJ Monterde. Here, KZ is wearing an ivory pantsuit and platform heels.
12. Sarah Lahbati
Sarah and Richard Guttierez chose to have an intimate wedding ceremony because of COVID-19 protocols, but the bride still looked stylish and polished!
